Parachute trouble

Tell stories about your spud cannon adventures!

I had my gun out and was shooting around when I decided to test a parachute type of ammo. (It's a 2" coupler sanded down and filled with hot glue. I hot glued 4 strings to the top and tied the strings to a plastic bag. Then I put the parachute in a 2" cap and set it on top of the coupler.) After my gun was charged to 95 PSI I launched the ammo. This is basically what happened UP UP UP UP DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN WHAM. To make a long story short the parachute didn't deploy and the whole thing landed on my dad's car :evil:

There was a crack in the sun roof and a pretty big scratch. The funny thing was it was my dads' first time seeing my gun and he was so impressed that he wasn't as mad as he could have been. [:p]

I shot an arrow into the air once with an old recurve bow. Missed my mom's car on the other side of the house by about 2 feet!
Yeah, the moral of that story is, don't let little kids play with real bows and arrows!
